I am sure that for moderate-liberal politics junkies like Broder and Kaus, Panetta and Feinstein have the same cachet that, say, Brett Favre has to a football fan. But most Californians have a dim awareness that Feinstein is one of their senators ("How many does each state get? I think it's two.") I would wager that 95% of adult Golden Staters could not tell you who Leon Panetta is. Maybe Panetta and Feinstein did not have a magical ability to beat Arnold Schwarzenegger. Maybe Schwarzenegger would have pasted them as handily as he did his actual opposition.
